Cellulose Insulation Removal (“Blow In”)
Why remove cellulose?
We are often confronted with the situation where we are asked to improve the existing ceiling insulation at a home that has cellulose blow in insulation.
Unfortunately, the uneven nature of the “blow in” insulation generally forms a lumpy surface. This means that if we were to lay new bats over the top, the new batts would be uneven and would not neatly butt up against each other and a “leaky” install would result.
In all insulation batt cases, they need to be well sealed again the ceiling lining and against each other with no gaps to avoid heat “leaking” out during winter and coming in during summer.
